We present a case of a 5 months old infant who presented with difficulty in breathing and a visible intranasal swelling. Clinical examination revealed a reddish mass medial to the middle turbinate in the left nasal cavity. MRI was done and a provisional diagnosis of nasal glioma was suggested. The mass was surgically excised and sent for histopathology which showed it to be comprising of astrocytes and neuroglial fibers intermixed with a fibrovascular connective tissue stroma. The presence of Glial fibrillary acid protein (GFAP) confirmed the presence of glial tissue.
